I've been down this road before and here is the easiest solution.
You'll need to carry 2 devices.
Buy a cheap local phone in GER for voice. (or bring an unlocked GSM phone from North America with a prepaid GER sim card bought off eBay)
Enable international data roaming on your BB before you leave.
Use the berry for data/email and use the phone for voice.
If your berry is unlocked you could switch the sims in and out as needed in the berry but that is a hassle.
